Research photographs, correspondence, notes, and typescripts of Charles Seymour Jr. deposited in the Visual Resources Collection upon his death in 1977. This collection is comprised of study and publication photographs principally associated with Seymour’s Pelican History of Art Volume: Sculpture in Italy, 1400-1500, Baltimore, 1st ed. 1966. Additional materials are associated with his research on Noyon Cathedral as well as a wide array of interests in European post-Renaissance sculpture. The boxed collection reflects the arrangement and order of the storage cabinets in the Visual Resources Collection at the time of its transfer to the Library Shelving Facility in 2008. Although the material may have been reorganized several times, the arrangement appears to reflect the order in which the material was received from the office of Charles Seymour, Jr. Many photographs are Alinari stock or major monuments within Charles Seymour’s areas of expertise.

What are finding aids?
Finding aids are records that describe collections and what they contain.
People who work at an institution that owns collections write the finding aids, and the
institution contributes finding aids to ArchiveGrid. We provide links to websites
for the departments which manage their institution's finding aids, so you can contact
them when you read a finding aid and want more information about something inside
the collection that interests you.
What is the difference between archives, manuscripts and special collections?
